TN American Water Company receives national recognition

CHATTANOOGA – June 2010 - - Tennessee American Water has received a national award for maintaining the Directors Award of recognition from the Partnership for Safe Water, a national volunteer initiative developed by EPA and other water organizations representing water suppliers striving to provide their communities with drinking water quality that surpasses the required federal standards.

The Directors Award is presented to water systems who have completed a successful review in the Partnership's Self-Assessment and Peer Review phase, a phase in which utilities examine the capabilities of their treatment plant operation and administration and then create a plan for implementing improvements. Tennessee American Water has maintained the Directors Award for ten years, an honor achieved by only 32 water utilities across the country.

"Maintaining Directors Award status for ten years demonstrates our philosophy of constant vigilance to improve water quality," said John Watson, president for Tennessee American Water.

Watson added, "We are thrilled to receive national recognition for this ongoing commitment."

            Tennessee American Water was presented with the Ten-Year Directors Award at the American Water Works Association's Annual Conference & Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, this month.
